More Soldiers ID’d at NY Revolutionary War Site

FISHKILL, N.Y. (AP) -

A Hudson Valley group working to preserve a military cemetery from the Revolutionary War says it has identified more soldiers believed to be buried there.

The Friends of the Fishkill Supply Depot has been using muster rolls and other old documents to identify soldiers buried in unmarked graves on a parcel of privately owned land in southern Dutchess County.

The group announced last year that it had identified 25 of the hundreds of soldiers believed to have been buried in the depot’s cemetery. The group now says it has identified nine more, all of them from New Hampshire. The Fishkill Supply Depot had the largest single burial ground of the Revolutionary War.
